FCGI Can't Post

I've headed about something called FCGI (Fast CGI). Is this simple to use and implement in CGI programs? can it run directly at a remote webhost? (mod_perl is a bit too agressive for me now)

Re: [yapp] FCGI [In reply to] Can't Post

Ive used FCGI before for a few projects. Basicaly it consists of two parts.

An apache module, and a Perl module

You will most likely need root level access to the remote host you wish to use to install and configure Fast CGI.

Most hosts do not install it, nore do they let clients use it, due to the fact that every script that needs to run as FCGI needs to have an appropriate entree in httpd.conf so it will execute when apache starts up.

If you can install it you can grab a copy from and follow the instructions for installing into apache.

Then you will need to install which i belive is avalible from CPAN.
So just a simple

perl -MCPAN -e shell 
install FCGI

should get that done for you.

I would suggest you look at the SDK for FCGI which should be available from, on howto code a script using FCGI.

Thank you very much for this information Smile

Unfornatuely, this properly means I can't use FCGI. I hoped it would be possible, for effeciency. My website is hosted at some webhost company aswell, so there is no chance I can use FCGI. (using it at my local test server isn't so exciting off course)
